  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
In this thesis we study several problems in the context of AdS/CFT. The first is that of gravitational phase transitions between AdS and dS geometries in the Gauss-Bonnet theory of gravity. Such transitions are mediated by thermalons and do not require matter fields. The phenomenon is strongly expected to be generic in higher curvatures theories of gravity. The second problem is the generation of new Supergravity backgrounds and the study of their holographic duals. We generate new examples of…

Gravitational AdS to dS phase transition in five-dimensional Einstein-Maxwell-Gauss-Bonnet gravity

In this work, we revisit a toy model proposed by Camanho {\it this http URL.} [JHEP 10 (2015) 179] and extensively study the possible existence of gravitational phase transition from AdS to dS

Gravitational phase transition mediated by thermalon in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet-Maxwell-Kalb-Ramond gravity

In this work, we study the possible existence of gravitational phase transition from AdS to dS asymptotic geometries in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity by adding the Maxwell one-form field ($A_\mu$)

In this paper, the possible existence of a thermal phase transition from asymptotic anti‐de Sitter (AdS) to de Sitter (dS) geometries in vacuum in the context of the novel fourdimensional



On AdS to dS transitions in higher-curvature gravity

A bstractWe study the possible existence of gravitational phase transitions from AdS to dS geometries in the context of higher-curvature gravities. We use Lanczos-Gauss-Bonnet (LGB) theory with a

Gauge/string duality in confining theories

Generalized phase transitions in Lovelock gravity

We investigate a novel mechanism for phase transitions that is a distinctive feature of higher-curvature gravity theories. For definiteness, we bound ourselves to the case of Lovelock gravities.

Reentrant phase transitions in rotating anti–de Sitter black holes

Introduction. In view of the AdS/CFT correspondence, phase transitions in asymptotically AdS black holes allow for a dual interpretation in the thermal conformal field theory (CFT) living on the AdS

Bubbling AdS space and 1/2 BPS geometries

We consider all 1/2 BPS excitations of AdS × S configurations in both type-IIB string theory and M-theory. In the dual field theories these excitations are described by free fermions. Configurations
